    Friar Tuck's shot has fallen into the depths of Hell. Shump should be at the end of the bench. I don't know what was going on with Gordon tonight, but whatever is broken, he needs to fix it. More than anything, he needs consistency. Of course, he's far from the only one. Harden should have had a bunch of assists tonight, but no one could hit dick, except for House, who should have played every minute Shump played, in my humble opinion.

    We can beat the Bucks if we aren't playing like a bunch of headless chickens racing around the barnyard.

    Like I said before we saw this in the playoffs. Rockets miss 3 after 3 and MDA does nothing. No counter no adjustments.

    I normally jump onto takes like this but in reality Harden + a team of scrubs on his back won't win a championship

    Cp3 and Capela need to play up to their contracts bc that's a crippling amount of money tied up in inconsistent / weak performance

    I disagree...both MVP candidates were mediocre tonight. However both had a double-double...so it was a wash. Harden 23pts, 10 rebounds, 7 assists. Giannis, 19pts, 14 rebounds.

    Harden's mind still in his 61pts game.

    He is not aggressive at all.

    sorry bruh, CP3 is only an All-Star level player now when he is playing at his absolute best...CP3’s average game this season is definitely not All-Star caliber

    he’s having his worst season since his rookie year by many metrics and is clearly worse than he was last year when he was still a legit top 10 player

    he took 26 shots and was driving all night...u always post like u didn’t even watch the game

    the refs were calling nothing and he wasn’t able to get off his stepback three because the Bucks were all over his left hand on the perimeter

    The difference was between Bledsoe and Gordon. Gordon can't not show up like that. But we can beat them. Just need a better performance from Gordon and mabye clint. We're good boys.

    Portland will win out the season. It seems like they never lose.

    They was willing to let Harden run to the paint because they knew it would be packed. They was willing to take the risk we'd miss a lot of 3 pointers..... and it worked.

    Yeah, Harden missed a lot attempts at the 3 pointer, but he should have at least 2 shooting fouls on the 3.... and the rest weren't really open looks. You could tell Harden was frustrated because he wasn't getting the fouls he should have, and he was also probably frustrated because his teammates kept bricking wide open.

    It may have looked like a blow out, but we literally gifted them that win. Poor shooting from the 3 pointer and sloppy points from turnovers.

    Losing Nurkic might change that scenario.

    They lost a key player last night. Nurkic was very key to what they did this year.

    Worst Rocket stat of the night...Eric Gordon, 0-7, zero points. He should have not played tonight. It was evident he was playing injured and should have sit this game out. His defense was bad too.
